Devils’ Bath

Bathtub-Rock-at-Devils-Den
Gettysburg

The boulder field at Devils Den prevented troops from ‘digging in’ and thus Union troops were forced to use the rocks as shelter from cannon and sniper fire. This small pool of water was undoubtably used for drinking as the battle took place in July in a fierce heat of about 100º.
